Atypical Season 3 First Trailer And Release Date Drops
Netflix has finally dropped the new trailer for its coming-of-age drama Atypical.
The series, which follows the life of an autistic teenager, will air on Netflix on 1 November.
The show follows the Gardners - Sam, an 18-year-old who is on the autistic spectrum and obsessed with penguins, and his protective younger sister Casey.
The first season saw Sam announce that his therapist encouraged him to 'get out there' and start looking for love.
He grows more and more independent, but his mum struggles to let go of him, while his sister gets accepted to private school on a scholarship.
The third season is set to show Casey debate over whether to break up with her boyfriend when she realises she has feelings for a girl in her school.

At the same time, we see his mum succumb to the stresses of her home life and start having an affair - which of course will have a knock on effect on the rest of the family.
The end of season two saw Sam encouraged to apply for university, after his therapist Julia recognised his autism gave him a special talent. He won a place at Denton University's Scientific Illustration course - which is most likely what we will see the progression of in season three.
Sam's funny but emotional journey of self-discovery, focuses not just on him but the rest of the family, who are all grappling with changes in their own lives - the central theme is essentially asking what it means to be normal.
Sam has to live in uni halls alone for the first time and the new season looks to focus on the challenges this brings. Things like living with roommates and a heavy workload for his course cause problems - these issues affect everybody so it will be interesting to see how the series tackles Sam's approach to it.
"Four out of five students on the spectrum don't graduate college within four years," he tells Zahid (Nik Dodani), getting flustered. "That means my chances of success are very low, and I'm basically doomed."
The third season was confirmed by Netflix back in October 2018, just two months after the second season came out. The third will have 10 episodes, where the first only had eight.
